Scratchbuilt.

I ordered an expensive resin kit from a US supplier, which consisted of two kits,
the two ends in one kit, and a middle extension set.

So the middle extension turned up immediately, with the ends on backorder.
After 12 months waiting, I gave up ever seeing the ends back in stock,
and they never have been.  So I have one useless middle section.


I then found a series of plans on an online Seebee website,
so I scratchbuilt two huts from plastic card.

Simply four half moon formers (windows and doors in ends) on a floor pan,
with plain plastic roof, over which I added corrugated plastic, as it was too thin itself.

Planted on the layout, on a series of piles.

Plain roof added.





Corrugated iron added.  Note 'balcony' at one end.
